#CUSA 给我们带来了什么?

CUSA成立于2014年4月11日,作为全荷学生学者联合会乌特勒支分会(ACSSNL-Utrecht)的学术部,CUSA旨在促进中荷学术交流以及为在荷中国学生学者争取权益。成立之初只有6名成员,经过一年的努力拼搏,CUSA已经发展为13名成员各尽其才、并成果累累的一支团队。

#####在这一年间CUSA 都默默的做了些什么呢?

  1. 为奖学金博士生争取权益!
    • CUSA针对CSC-UU Ph.D的现状展开了一次调研,将我们所处的现状、遇到的问题汇总成一份掷地有声的博士生权益报告,递交给博士生议会、乌特列支大学议会。在最近的一个月中,我们在博士生议会进行辩论,与学校相关负责人员洽谈,并受校长邀请面对面会谈。最终得到学校各部门的重视,并且达成一致意见,尽快解决报告中所涉及的问题。
    • CUSA今后将参与到学校针对中国博士生而制定的新政策商讨中。新政策将涵盖身份、住房、新生指南等问题。
    • CUSA不仅致力于维护中国留学生的权益,还将和乌特勒支大学国际合作处进行合作,反映更多国际留学生的诉求,服务更广大的博士生群体。
  2. 筹办新一轮新生接待活动
    • 加入更有意义的热门话题讨论单元,与校长、行政人员、教授等进行面对面交流!话题将涵盖生活学习文化交流等各个领域,为新老学生更好地在荷生活学习提供交流平台。
  3. 协助乌特列支大学筹办科研基金活动节(Utrecht Funding Days)
    • 对于2015年6月份的 科研基金活动节, CUSA 将组织大家积极参与其中,为今后科研道路上顺利申请基金提供有益信息。
    • 对于2015年10月份的 科研基金活动节, CUSA将邀请中荷学者以及大使馆工作人员就如何申请中荷合作基金以及相关政策进行宣传普及。
  4. 承接学联
    • CUSA承接乌特列支学联的事务,并举办了备受好评的cocktail party,为在荷中国留学生繁重学习之余,带来轻松愉快的活动。

CUSA就在我们的身边,代表大家的权益,为大家的心声呐喊、奔走。CUSA 今天取得的成就离不开您的贡献、支持。您回馈的每个信息都是对我们工作的莫大鼓励,也是对在荷中国学生学者这个群体的认同与尊重。在此,我们向您深表感谢,并希望得到您一如既往的支持,我们将会更加努力!
